Mervyn King Appointed To Aston Villa Board

Thu 4th Feb 2016 | Clubs Ownership

Aston Villa Football Club has announced the appointment of Lord King of Lothbury, the former Governor of the Bank of England, to its Board of Directors.

Chairman Steve Hollis said: "I was delighted when Mervyn agreed to join the Board. His dedicated support for the Club is well known.

"Mervyn successfully steered the Bank of England through the most turbulent economic headwinds in living memory and his appointment to the Board is a huge boost as we plan our path back to more successful times."

Mervyn added: "It is a privilege to be asked to serve as a director of this great Club. I watched my first match at Villa Park more than 55 years ago, and have experienced the highs and the lows since then.

"I shall do my best to help the rebuilding of Aston Villa Football Club as together we return it to its position as one of the top clubs in the world."
